The Knee Saga – discovery

I have been having issues with a hard click (aka dull thump) when I walk, and sometimes it is audible. I am working on strengthening the muscles to help prevent this, and it is helping, but I discovered something. I have known for years that my hips were set back a bit further than they should be, which makes my natural walk a bit duck footed. Also, I am physically unable to bring my knees to my chest, well I could, but I would have to break my hips.

When something I not right physically I tend to focus on it and try and see what the problem might be and if I can correct it. Doing that with a stomach issue at the moment and so far I have not figure it out, but I’m narrowing it down, however that’s another story…back to the knee

I have walked slightly duck footed for many MANY years, and it is natural for me. However, I discovered that the new knee does not appear to be designed for that and that is part of the problem. I discovered yesterday that if I walk with my foot straight the clicking is much less noticeable and at times nonexistent, but it takes a heck of. Lot of concentration on imply walking. So now all I have to do is retrain myself how to walk….This is going to require me to pay very close attention to how I walk to retrain myself how and where to properly place my foot when walking.

Well, at least this whole knee thing has never been boring….
